Storch, a leader in the mountain bike community, designs his first signature bike collection with Dakine
Dakine, the trusted name in purpose-built gear for outdoor adventure, is excited to introduce the Carson Storch Signature Series, a two-piece apparel and accessory line for male riders. Designed in collaboration with professional mountain biker and Dakine team rider, Carson Storch, the line includes a long-sleeve, high-tech bike jersey and lightweight, moisture wicking gloves built for gravity-inspired mountain biking. The design incorporates retro patterns and a specially designed Mad Excavator graphic, reflective of Storch’s roots in motocross and moving dirt with machinery around the Pacific Northwest throughout his career.
“Carson is pushing the limits of mountain biking on a daily basis, progressing his individual skills and the sport of mountain biking itself,” says mountain marketing manager, Gabe Schroder. “From his roots in Bend, Oregon, Carson has helped develop the Oregon mountain biking scene by consulting with area trail builders, creating internationally acclaimed local events, and inspiring others to get on their bikes. We’ve always been stoked to have him on the Dakine team and are even more thrilled to roll out this collection in collaboration with him.”
The Carson Storch Signature Series was designed with durability and performance in mind. The Carson Storch Thrillium Jersey features a streamlined fit that is comfortable and low profile. The 100% recycled polyester jersey is stretchy, breathable and utilizes Polygiene® odor control technology to keep things fresh after long days on the trail. The jersey is built with UPF 20 sun protection for added peace of mind on those sunny bluebird days. The Carson Storch Glove uses durable, tactile Pittards® goat leather on the palm, providing unparalleled grip and bar feel that is also incredibly flexible.
“This design is really tied to my youth when I grew up racing and riding motocross. I was inspired by some of the early retro moto jerseys and sought to create a good balance of old school retro moto with a modern, clean look,” says Storch. “My favorite part of the jersey is the Mad Excavator graphic, which my good friend, KC Badger, designed for me. I spend a good amount of time moving dirt in my backyard to build my own features and lines that I practice and film on, and this graphic represents that and my passion for creating my own course in my career and life.”
